The benefits of version six of the Internet Protocol (IPv6) are presented along with a tutorial on how an IPv6 address can be more efficiently displayed and written. This video will also show how to use the INTERFACE parameter of the NETSH command to add IPv6 addresses and name servers on a Windows Server.
